                                                                              About Colorado Farm to Table

In 1996, career farmer Tony Madone, Jr., started a two acre garden plot in Salida, Colorado and 
donated all of the produce to the hungry. His commitment would eventually grow into what is today Colorado Farm to Table (CFTT), which officially became a registered 501c3 non-profit organization in 2006. Our 
mission is to sustainably grow nutritious vegetables for donation to those in need of healthy food 
throughout Colorado. Annual revenues typically range between $230,000 and $260,000. CFTT generates revenues by seeking charitable contributions, utilizing a strong volunteer base, and seeking non-charitable donations.
